Excerpt from Readings From the Apocrypha The object of this little book is very simple: it is to familiarize English readers with the treasures contained in the deutero-canonical writings which we call the Apocrypha. The Church of England, it is true, in her lectionary, requires certain passages of these writings to be read in churches; but, as these passages are not read on Sundays, few people know much about them. I have made the Authorized Version the basis of the text here printed; but, in places where it is plainly faulty, I have tried to mend its defects, relying largely on the material supplied by the notes in C. J. Ball's Variorum Apocrypha (an in valuable book), Charles's two sumptuous volumes, Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testa ment and on the help afforded by the Revised Version of the Apocrypha though I have used the last somewhat sparingly.
